Cultural Awareness Training for Yoga Teachers & Students
with Eve White & Katie Rose
19-21 February, 2021
This special and unique training deigned by Eve White and Katie Rose opens up two areas for investigation:
1) The Australian yoga teacher’s relationship to ‘Country’ and how we may all be more respectful of Indigenous Australia’s roots in our classes and offerings.
2) The ongoing conversation about cultural appropriation in yoga in regard to Indian culture and yoga’s ‘roots’ in Eastern tradition.
Yoga & Ayurveda for the Individual - with Katie Rose
5th-7th March 2021
An individually tailored approach to teaching private yoga classes with Katie Rose at Sukha Mukha Yoga in Bronte.In this module we will explore some elements of ayurveda as a lens through which we can look at students as individuals, as well as self-practice and teaching of chanting (nada yoga), pranayama, meditation and sadhana (conscious spiritual practices) for one-to-one work.
Advanced Sequencing & Theming According to the Chakras - with Idit Hefer Tamir
14th-16th May 2021
Sequencing is the foundation of all good yoga classes. We will reflect on creating sequencing, built around a theme (such as the chakras for example) and where you might be stuck in a sequencing ‘rut’ or teaching on auto-pilot. We will also look at advanced alignment – how to teach difficult and advanced poses both safely and in relation to class themes.
Sacred Scripture - with Katie Rose
23rd-25th July 2021
Drawing on the Bhagavad Gita and the Yoga Sutras, learn how to effectively integrate spiritual teachings of yoga into your classes naturally, without being too ‘out-there’ or ‘over-sharing’ your personal story. Learn philosophy of yoga in relation to daily life, mantra and chanting with Nada yoga (music). Explore what it means to be a spiritual activist and the path of the yogi in the modern world.
Sustainable Teaching - with Idit Hefer Tamir
10th-12th September 2021
What makes our teaching and practice of yoga sustainable?
Certainly, the events of the last few months have highlighted that we cannot rely on external factors to keep our teaching and practice steady. The landscape for yoga teachers has shifted and changed so much and is continuing to do so. In this powerful and supportive Advanced Teacher Training module we will explore how we can continue to thrive and survive as yoga teachers. Course directors Idit Heffer-Tamir and Katie Rose have re-worked this module completely in 2020 to support you during this time of change.
